Talk it Over - Sermon Discussion
Expand
Open
Looking back at your notes from this Sunday, talk about what stood out to you in the message. Was there something especially helpful, challenging, convicting, or hard to grasp? In your past church experience, what has been more important: right doctrine (correct understanding of the Bible) or love? What are the potential dangers in getting rid of either?

Additional Scripture & Next Steps

Read Acts 19:8-40.
What is happening in this passage?
Talk about the kind of culture the Ephesian church was surrounded by and how our culture is similar or different.

Read Acts 20:16-32.
What is happening in this passage? How might the strength of the Ephesian church (their focus on right doctrine) be the root cause of why Jesus had to correct them? This church was busy in ministry, steady in adversity, solid in theology.
Why was repentance necessary?

Have there been times your love for God and others has wained? What has helped you keep your love for God and others alive and fresh?

What can you do this week to show your love for someone in our church?
